Regional Programs of Study

Statewide labor market data does not support offering all CTE course sequences at every high school across Texas. Each year, local education agencies with labor market data may apply for regional programs of study. The application will require the submission of labor market data that validates the occupations and course sequence of the proposed program of study being aligned with regional needs for high-wage, high-skill, and in-demand careers.
